REIWA is pleased to be
gifted with a copy of Freedom to Fly, a special artwork by Barbara
Bynder which symbolises opportunities created by the Residential Tenancies Legislation Amendment (Family Violence) Bill 2018.
The amendment was formally
passed in February 2019 which enables victims of family and domestic violence
to have control over their circumstances, by providing them the powers to
remove themselves or a perpetrator from a shared rental property.
of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) Director of Policy and
Legislation, Penny Lipscombe, presented the artwork to REIWA CEO Neville Pozzi,
who said it was an absolute privilege to receive this gift.
“Family violence is a growing issue in our community and we all have a
responsibility to help eradicate it and ensure measures are put in place to
assist victims instead of punish them.
“REIWA supported the WA
Government’s efforts to amend the Act
and we are proud to have worked alongside the Government to help victims of
family violence leave tenancies in which they feel unsafe,” Mr Pozzi said.
